Action adventure about the unlikely partnership formed by an insurance investigator and an ageing cat burglar who embark on a series of robberies together.

Robert 'Mac' MacDougal has an untarnished reputation as the world's greatest art thief. So when a priceless Rembrandt is stolen in New York, the evidence points to Mac. Insurance investigator Virginia 'Gin' Baker persuades her boss, whose company will lose $24 million on the theft, to let her go after the master criminal. But Mac proves more crafty and elusive than she anticipated and soon Gin is embroiled in an edgy partnership with the enigmatic thief that involves a daring heist and spans the shores from Scotland to Kuala Lumpar, but at the end of the day, who's playing who?
